Description:

There are lots of these growing in a coniferous plantation close to where I live (Neath, South Wales) Yellow with really white gills and stalk. Sorry I didn't include a picture of the whole thing. Just came back from a talk with Pat 'O Reilly at Welsh Botanic Gardens, and realise how important it is to see the base!

Your right on genus but these are very tricky to identify without doing chemical tests an microscopy.
